The store just marked Christmas candy 75% off. As we enjoyed a 12-cent Santa outside, we decided it was too pretty to keep driving. We'd make an impromptu stop at the Duck River below the Normandy Lake Dam. But we couldn't quite remember how to get there...
We thought we'd find a map downtown. While my husband walked to the Chamber of Commerce, I made a beeline for this junky establishment. He came back emptyhanded--but I had a ten cent county map when he returned!
I had to run in Faye's Discount Grocery on the square--purely for research purposes, of course! This salvage store had higher prices than I expected for the food quality. However, six years in business must mean occasional bargains.
We made it to Normandy Dam less than 20 minutes later. The kids and I sunned on a picnic blanket while my husband fished. Andrew reeled in a tiny little trout.
Normandy itself is like a ghost town. I hope there are still quaint spots near fishing rivers when it's time for us to retire.
